Legally Blind Woman Takes Down Black Bear

An Ishpeming woman refuses to let her eyesight get in the way of one of her favorite pastimes.

Jaime Villa and her boyfriend, Scott Nault, love going into the woods around Marquette County to hunt.

It can be difficult for Villa at times because she’s legally blind.

But that didn’t stop her from bagging a black bear.

Nault bought Villa her gun, featuring a laser sight, as a birthday present.

And with his help, she took the successful shot.

The plan now is to take the bear to a taxidermist and get an upper-body mount for it.
